Christmas Lights to Light Up Our Museum

Christmas is the season when we all enjoy the beautiful lights.  This year we are again thinking of adding a few new lights to the museum to add to our holiday.  Every year the weekend after Thanksgiving the museum is opened to allow folks to take advantage of the items we sell at the museum.  We are looking forward to adding a few more Christmas trees to be placed around the museum, either small ones that can set on the display cases or a few larger ones that can stand alone on the floor.  They could have lights on them or not.  Our idea is to open the museum to the public on Saturday, November 19, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  Also on Sunday November 20, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00, this would be in addition to the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 26, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00p.m.  The museum will also be opened during the Ice House Festival on Saturday Dec. 3, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

If you would like to help us with this special Christmas project please plan to bring your tree to the museum on Saturday November 12, from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00p.m. Or call 814-382-8722 to make other arrangements.  If you wish to remove your tree after our Christmas sale we ask that you also do so by appointment, we would like to have all trees removed by December 12, 2022 to allow room for our display committee to work in the spring.

We hope this will add to your holiday for you and your family.  Bring all the kids and show them our beautiful museum as you rejoice in the wonderful memories from the past and make some new ones.

Any questions please contact Judy Groger (814) 382-8722

Museum Closing

We will close the museum for the season the weekend of Pumpkin Fest, Sept. 17, but we will be open the Saturday after Thanksgiving for our special Small Business Saturday sale and Dec. 3 for the Ice House Festival.

We also will have special openings on the days of the Christmas tree events. (See above story.)

We also have special appointments for people who can't come to the museum during those hours.

Paddlefest

The 6th Annual Paddlefest was held on Saturday, August 6, 2022 at Fireman’s Beach.  We had a beautiful morning on the lake and a record turnout for the Dice Run and Race. Many thanks to our participants, our Event Sponsor Silver Shores and all of our sponsors, our volunteers and the Conneaut Lake community for their support of Paddlefest.  This fundraiser makes it possible for the Conneaut Lake Area Historical Society to continue our mission to preserve and share our rich area history for generations to come.
